After last week’s whirlwind program of activities and outings with mom-in-law, it was back to work for me today. Some editing and proofreading work had been pushed aside for a week, and now it was clamouring for attention.
As you can imagine, it was tricky to concentrate, as my head was all over the place, remembering the fun times we had, our walking tour of Kirstenbosch, our trip out to McGregor to see Donkey, Sunday afternoon’s garden concert with the Navy Band, and all those other exciting events of which I’ve only shared tiny snippets.
Tell me, do you also feel like life is speeding up, and that you’re running and running and running, and no matter how much you try to cram into your days, there is always more to be done?
Does your To Do List also keep growing and growing, even if you tick things off as ‘Done and Dusted’?
Don’t you sometimes wish there was a PAUSE button in your life?
I would love to click ‘Pause’ right now, so that I can peacefully go through all the lovely photos we took, choose the best ones to share with all my loyal and supportive blog friends and followers, and do a nice little write-up on each of the things we did.
And then I’ll happily click the Play button again and resume Life.
For now, I shall leave you with a brief slideshow of Suzie, adorably cute white-and-ginger kitty from nextdoor, who snoozed ontop of our garden wall this afternoon, partly in the sun, partly in the shade, just so. Yeah, cats know how to get the most Pleasure out of Life, without feeling the slightest trace of guilt at Un-Done Items on the To-Do List. They probably don’t even have a List. I’m sure there’s a Life Lesson in there somewhere.
